Mitsotakis Has Indicated that Elections Will Take Place after Easter

ATHENS – Sources indicate that Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has dispelled rumors of early elections before Orthodox Easter by announcing a busy legislative agenda over the next few weeks, including around 10 bills to go through parliament. Additionally, discreet support measures for families of Tempi rail crash victims will be announced next week. During a cabinet meeting focused solely on the Tempi rail accident, the Prime Minister urged participants to engage in public dialogue with empathy and sincerity, without seeking to offset one tragedy against another.

Furthermore, an announcement about a new increase in the minimum wage is expected by the end of next week. Sources suggest that the announcement could have been made earlier, but the government avoided creating the impression of changing the agenda.
